Default Unexpected Gold

I don't usually post much but when I find things like this it is a must.
The water is like 5 feet lower than normal at my local lake so I'm able to get out like 1000 feet from shore. I know it seems crazy but I wanted to detect quietly away from all the pull tabs and bottle caps if that makes sense. I hit a few coins and an old belt buckle. Then where it's about 10 feet deep normally and middle of nowhere the excel screamed bloody murder and first scoop I got this pretty little bracelet. I can't believe people wear this stuff out in the lake but I'm sure glad the do. I did the happy dance all the way back to the truck and the wife loves it.
Happy hunting
Matt

Florida fresh water?

Ever think about gators or water moccasins?

I used to water ski in the Lake Butler chain of lakes, years ago.

Who cares about gators when you can find stuff like that. You have a scoop. Feed it to the gator if it comes close.

Awesome

Getting it tested today. It's 14k at 14.4 grams but looking through the loop I think they are CZ. I'll know for sure later today.

Yes Florida freshwater. I keep a look out but I've been in these waters since I could swim. The fish that swarm me when shaking the scoop have scared the !!!! out of me on occasion but never had any snakes or gators bother me.
